Brexit supporters are worried that ballot papers could be compromised in today’s huge EU referendum vote because voting booths only provide pencils.

Numerous Brits took to Twitter to express concerns that votes could be changed by corrupt electoral staff.

Reports are already coming in that voters are being told they can’t use their own pens and must use a pencil to vote, although the Electoral Reform Society has said that voters can bring their own pen.

Police were even called when one woman offered to lend her pen to other voters.

Voters are encouraging people to bring their own pens so that ‘x’ marks on the ballot paper cannot be rubbed out.

CNBC editor Javier E. David commented on the issue.

Meanwhile, others accused concerned voters of being paranoid for worrying about the vote being rigged.

The 2014 Scottish independence vote was also hit by “countless” claims of vote fraud after a video circulated on YouTube showing a counting officer lifting votes from a ‘yes’ pile and placing them on a ‘no’ pile.

Over 87,000 people later signed a petition to demand “an independent re-count of all votes.”
